KAMPALA. To the current generation of Lady Cranes players, Charlotte Mudoola is a source of wisdom and inspiration. Having played for the national team for more than a decade, she clearly fits the “been there, seen and done it all” narration. Playing in the World Cup is every player’s dream, and Mudoola got a taste of that experience during the 2009 Women’s 7s showpiece in Dubai. “I am determined (to keep playing) and I believe I can still contribute to Ugandan rugby as a player,” she opens up.
KAMPALA. In the insurance sector, good health is top priority. That is why up to 36 insurance companies converged to take part in this year’s Insurance Industry Sports Gala, held at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole. Last year’s winners, UAP Old Mutual, again emerged the best, with a total of 341 points. They triumphed in marathons (men and women), Tug of War, 100m (men and women), 200m (men and women) and Relays (men and women).
KAMPALA. Today’s Africa Gold Cup match between Uganda and Namibia brings emotions to Alex Mubiru. Alongside Mathias Ochwo, Mubiru is the only other player to have played against Namibia in 2007. Ten years down the road, the veteran hooker remembers events surrounding the 20-19 win like they happened yesterday; “They were very pumped up but we stopped them. I made a try-saving tackle near the posts that I will never forget,” he starts. Jack of all tradesMubiru is an all-round sportsman.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
